25G and 50G Ethernet Subsystems - 2016.3 - RS-FEC not supported for Kintex or Zynq UltraScale+ -2LV devices

Description

In Vivado 2016.3, support was added to the 25G and 50G Ethernet Subsystems for Kintex and Zynq UltraScale+ -2LV devices.

However, support for this speed grade has not been added yet for the 25G or 50G RS-FEC. The 25G and 50G Ethernet Subsystem GUI allows the RS-FEC option to be selected, but will generate an error:

ERROR: [Common 17-70] Application Exception: Failed to create subcore IP 'l_ethernet_0_ieee802d3_50g_rs_fec_0'. The specified IP 'xilinx.com:ip:ieee802d3_50g_rs_fec:1.0' does not support the current part 'xcku15p-ffve1517-2LV-e-EVAL'

CRITICAL WARNING: [IP_Flow 19-1747] Failed to deliver file '/proj/xbuilds/2016.3_0927_1/installs/lin64/Vivado/2016.3/data/ip/xilinx/l_ethernet_v2_0/subcore/rs_fec_elaborate.xit': ERROR: [Common 17-70] Application Exception: Failed to create subcore IP 'l_ethernet_0_ieee802d3_50g_rs_fec_0'. The specified IP 'xilinx.com:ip:ieee802d3_50g_rs_fec:1.0' does not support the current part 'xcku15p-ffve1517-2LV-e-EVAL'

Solution

The 25G and 50G RS-FEC is supported on Virtex UltraScale+ -2LV devices and other supported devices.

Support for Kintex and Zynq UltraScale+ -2LV devices is being investigated for future software releases.
